Liverpool: Fans gush as journalist confirms Reds’ interest in Sven Botman - Liverpool

Many Liverpool fans reacted in delight after a journalist confirmed the Reds were working on a deal to sign Lille defender Sven Botman.

The 20-year-old is on the Anfield radar and Jurgen Klopp’s side have opened talks with his agent regarding a possible move to the Premier League champions in January, Duncan Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast.

Can you beat the Anfield 100 appearances quiz? First up, which Liverpool player was the last to reach 100 league games before Trent Alexander-Arnold did it this season?

Botman joined Lille for £7m from Ajax in the summer after failing to make the grade at the Johan Cruyff Arena, and the 6 foot 4 centre-back has gone on to make 23 first-team outings in France.

During that timeframe, Lille have kept nine clean sheets. But the Ligue 1 club are currently going through financial hardship and have recently been sold to a Luxembourg-based investment fund.

Unsurprisingly, supporters were overjoyed with the news, with the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez ruled out for a significant amount of time after both sustained serious knee injuries.
